KARACHI – Police claimed on Saturday they had solved the mystery surrounding the murder of a woman in Karachi’s North Nazimabad neighborhood. The woman, identified as Fatima Feroze, was shot and killed in Block A Nazimabad North on October 19. Central Police Senior Inspector (SSP) Arif Aslam said the two suspects involved in the murder case had been arrested. He said investigators tracked down the suspects, named Shakeel and Bilal alias Billi, with the help of jackets worn by Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) workers because one of the suspects was seen wearing them at the time of the incident. He said the father of the two suspects was a KMC employee.
The incident was not the result of personal animosity but street crime, he said. Police officers said the suspect saw a car with four girls in it near the Council Office and started chasing it on bicycles. Shakeel rode his bike with Bilal on a pillion. As soon as Bilal, wearing his father’s KMC jacket, got off to intercept the car and rob their valuables in Block A Nazimabad North, the woman tried to drive. As a result, the suspect opened fire, which resulted in the woman’s death.
